Description

This project explores a creative fiction writer’s process through writing four pieces of short fiction. Documenting his progress along the way, the writer uses peer-revision to refine his work. This method means to improve early drafts by both interacting with readers and utilizing the examples of well-known authors. The writer’s stories will be considered successful if their plot moves at a bright pace, if the characters and settings are authentic, and if they come to a satisfying conclusion. The project will consist of these stories and an accompanying writer’s notebook, which examines certain revisions representative of a move to good fiction writing.
